25 September

World Pharmacists Day
The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) strongly encourages all pharmacists and their associations across the globe to participate in World Pharmacists Day on 25 September. This year’s theme is:

“Access to pharmacists is access to health”

For many years, FIP has recognized that access to medicines is a major issue in many parts of the world and pharmacists play a key role throughout the whole supply chain towards improving access to medicines.
However, access to medicines itself will not result automatically in optimal health outcomes.

September 25 : World Maritime Day
World Maritime Day for 2014 is Thursday, 25 September.

The theme for this year's World Maritime Day "IMO conventions: effective implementation" was chosen in order to provide an opportunity to shine a spotlight on those IMO treaty instruments, which have not yet entered into force, as well as those for which ratification by more States and more effective implementation would yield significant benefits.
